21 Mar House Assembly – Gravitational Waves
About a month ago there were a lot of articles about the discovery of gravity waves. If you were not sure about General Relativity and what gravity waves are, then ask a Chelsea Academy student! In House Assembly this week coaching groups explained how gravity works using a trampoline, a student and a netball! The maths is very complicated but the concepts are surprisingly simple. Successfully detecting gravity waves from two black holes colliding 1.5 billion years ago is one of the most important scientific breakthroughs of this century.
